On Wednesday, Sept. 7,  Friends of the Thomaston Public Library’s Artists and Authors Among Us lecture series will continue with artist Elizabeth Greenberg. Her one-hour presentation will begin 7 p.m. in the library gym, located in the Thomaston Academy building, Main Street/Route 1.

Thomaston artist and educator Greenberg is the Director of Education at the Maine Media Workshops and Maine Media College, as well as an instructor in both the undergraduate and graduate programs at the college in Rockport.

Greenberg received her bachelor of fine arts degree in photography from Rhode Island School of Design. Following undergraduate school, she spent her first summer in Maine at “The Workshops,” thus beginning a long-term relationship. She began teaching photography in 1994, inspiring her to pursue a career in arts education.

In 1998, Greenberg returned to graduate school and was awarded a master of fine arts degree in visual arts from Vermont College in 2000. In addition to teaching summer workshops and courses in photography and professional development at Maine Media College, she has taught at The New School for Social Research in New York City; The Baum School of Art in Allentown, Pa.; and Lafayette College in Easton, Pa.

As a practicing artist, Greenberg has exhibited nationally as well as curated several traveling exhibitions. She is a member of the National Board of Directors for the Society for Photographic Education.

The program includes time for questions, and a small reception will be held. The series is free to the public, but donations to the library are greatly appreciated. The next presenter will be artist Eric Hopkins, Sept. 15. For more information, contact the library at 354-2453.
